JOYCE Gallery collaborated with “3812 Contemporary Art Projects” to organize a solo exhibition of Chinese contemporary artist Xiang Yang, which is being held at One Island South. Four of Yang’s best known installations including sculptures constructed by using embroidery thread, are on display including: “Here and There”, ”A Solitary Temple Amid Clearing Peaks” , “Floating Objects” and “Dust in Evolution II”.
Xiang Yang (Chinese, b.1967) was born and raised in China and moved to the USA in 1998. He is currently living and working between New York and Beijing. He has exhibited installations and performance art at many venues including the Museum of Art and Design (New York), Painted Bride Art Center (Philadelphia), National Art Museum of China (Beijing) and his large-scale work, Harmony Tower, was commissioned for Future Pavilion, EXPO 2010, Shanghai. Xiang Yang is best known for his installations constructed by using embroidery thread. The work synthesizes the traditions of China: philosophy, ambiance, art and craft, with a new range of materials, forms, and critical thoughts encountered in contemporary Western art practice. In matters personal and global, it is the relationship of opposing ideas and states of being that Xiang Yang explores in his practice of art.
Exhibition until August, 2013
Opening hours: 8am to 8pm (daily)
Venue: One Island South, 2 Heung Yip Road, Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong.
